6 quotes from Jesse Stuart: 'Write something to suit yourself and many people will like it; write something to suit everybody . You can help us or you can hurt us. Our success depends largely on you. I used to think when I first started teaching school that it was all up to the teachers and the pupils. I have changed my mind. The little island of humanity that is each one of you must unite with other islands and become a mainland if we are to have a successful school. Jesse Stuart, The Thread That Runs So True. tags: teachers, teaching.

I have changed my mind. I told them to walk proudly, with their heads held high, and to thank God they had chosen the teaching profession-the mother of all professions; that they were members working in the front line of American democracy. that they were the ground roots and not the brace roots of American democracy.

A graceful ode to what he considered the greatest profession there is, Jesse Stuart's The Thread That Runs So True is timeless proof that good teaching is forever and the teacher is immortal.

Every teacher and every prospective teacher should read this wonderful book. It is an amazing account of a country boy with a deep thirst for education finding his niche in the world. Jesse was well-educated in the ways of farming and the ways of knowing nature there in the Kentucky hills, but his father agreed that Jesse needed a real education. And Jesse used that education to help other young hill country folks see the need of education, also. It is an inspiring account of the ways Jesse found to inspire and challenge his back-country students and how they rewarded his efforts beyond belief.

An interesting story about Kentucky one-room school houses and small town school systems in the late 1940's. The author chose a way of life that he adored and motivated many others to follow in his path. My copy is the 32nd printing of the book so I believe many others have found it interesting. Having taught in small towns I can relate to some of his problems and some of his solutions, some of which would land him in jail today. I enjoyed it a lot and would have given it five stars if it had a better beginning. Once into the book it is great reading.

An excellent book I read fifty years ago, then taught 30 years ago. Reading it again after watching "The Waltons" on television proved quite synergistic, with plenty of down-to-earth American values on parade. Stuart's prose is quite poetic and his life a tapestry of hard work, perseverance, passion, and great idealism, a must-read for anyone who cares about teaching, learning or civilization.

Read this book many years ago when I lived in Nashville near Vanderbilt University. Jesse Stuart was an illustrious Vandy alum, and had some affiliation with the famous group of writers there known as the Fugitives. The Thread That Runs So True is extremely well-written and many people will probably--like me--read it cover to cover at one sitting. I have used this book as a gift to many of my teacher friends through the years. It is both thought provoking and inspiring.

I DO happen to have a first edition autographed copy given to me as a gift which I cherish. I have loved this book so much, I could read it yearly. I've had difficulties finding it through the years to give to colleagues and beginning teachers. This book should be required reading for all new teachers. Jesse Stuart was light years ahead of his time. He was a dedicated, committed, and passionate teacher. When the students weren't "getting" the math lesson, he looked around the room, noticed the Farm Bureau calendar on the wall, took it down and cut out the numbers for the students to have concrete manipulatives. Decades later, publishing companies are selling concrete manipulative for students to learn math. One of the other reviews stated "he wasn't a good writer." He was a teacher, writing his story. I am a National Board Certified teacher of writing and I would love to see more teachers write their story.

I first read this book when I was a freshman in high school, and fell in love with Jesse Stuart's writing. Since then I have read many of his books, and have never been disappointed. The Thread That Runs So True is a wonderful story which I've read several times over the years. It speaks of simpler times -- days I wish I could visit again. In my opinion, Jesse Stuart is one of the all time best!

This book chronicles the author's teaching career in the hills of Kentucky during the 1920s. It is well written, beautifully set, with perfectly developed characters. I loved the book and the writing style. I will definitely read more by this author. This is a gem.
I've been reading this book to my adult son who was a school principal. It was his choice of a way for us to spend quality time during his last days. He wanted each of his 3 sons to read it also and I bought copies for each. Such a good story of a young man who became well known for his work in rural education. He was humble and genuine. The stories of school in the 20's is fascinating. A good easy read for all, but it may bri ng some tears as well.
